Postern Hill is located in the Savernake Forest, which is privately owned by the Earl of Cardigan and his family. The luscious green canopy of oak trees makes the woodland ideal for walking and cycling. If it's woodland wildlife that you are interested in, this is a good spot for watchig bats - eleven different species have been recorded here. There is a toilet block with hot and cold running water, but there are no showers on the site and dogs are welcome. The site received an Award of Special Distinction in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards. A twenty-minute walk will take you into the historic market town of Marlborough, recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1097. There's a supermarket, post office, pubs, restaurants and other shops in the town centre. Other nearby attractons include Longleat Safari Park, Avebury Stone Circle, Stonehenge, and the Kennet and Avon canals.
Set within the Savernake Forest in Wiltshire, Postern Hill is perfect for cycling or walking among nature, or if you enjoy days out there is plenty to choose from nearby.

After many great reviews for this site we arrived with high expectations for our work away day.
However on arrival we were greeted with an exceptionally unfriendly site manager who made us all feel incredibly unwelcome. As a group of 10 professionals in our 30's-50's we were there to enjoy a relaxing time away from the office and did not expect to be treated like a group of children.
We were under constant watch from the site warden, told we were not allowed to kick a ball or basically do anything despite the fact that the site was empty and we made sure we were out of the way of everyone.
We were over charged for our pitch and quite frankly it was exceptionally expensive for a miserable night away with lack of facilities. I would not recommend this site to anyone unless you want to experience worst customer service in the UK.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Postern Hill Caravan and Camping Site for two nights, this has no shower block but does have toilets that are kept very clean. The site was kept tidy and very informal which is how we like it, all the staff were really friendly and helpful.
We had a standard pitch and were able to choose where we would like to be. Although we had a fair amount of rain the ground seemed to drain away fairly quickly and the campers didn't arrear to have any problems.
We were also able to walk our dog Tommy through the forest which was very enjoyable for him and us.
We will definately be staying at this site again.
